Paula is one of 4 siblings who recently got their lucky ticket to start new lives in the UK.
They lived together in a bigger pack of dogs, maybe a pack of 15 dogs. All bigger and more confident that the siblings. They would run away but when covered would tolerate a cuddle. We knew if we didn't remove them they would be lost forever.
They all arrived into the UK and have gone to separate fosters. They are slowly adapting to home life and becoming braver each day. But there is alot to adapt to, from living 24/7 in a kennel, no walks or contact to UK life is a big leap and they need some time guidance patience.
They are learning and starting to enjoy life, they just need a bit more time to adjust.
Once adjusted they will be amazing family members.
With the right boundaries and guidance he will all easily adjust and make a great family pet. We ask our adopters to be 100% sure they are ready to commit to the training and time required.
IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO MEET / ADOPT NOW PLEASE DO NOT APPLY AS WE ARE A SMALL TEAM AND NEED TO PRIORITISE FAMILIES READY.
Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dog's Name: Paula
Where does Paula sleep at night?
She sleeps on her bed in our bedroom.
How is Paula with current dogs/animals?
We have another rescue dog, male 3yrs old, and absolutely no bother at all, no aggression, very gentle. Fine with my cat, interested but didn’t want to chase or woof
Is Paula clean indoors?
She has only messed in the kitchen the first night we had her. And one little wee upstairs. Apart from that she goes outside. Lots of praise given afterwards when she toilets outside which she seems to like.
Can Paula be left alone?
Yes she has been left alone with my other dog for 1 hour and no problems. Even got a waggy tail on my return.
How is Paula out on walks?
She is nervous, but getting used to cars, buses, scooters etc. Lots of encouragement whilst out walking and each walk there is an improvement. She will soon learn that walks are fun, she has never had them before and is doing so well considering.
How does Paula walk on the lead?
Really well, no pulling and looking up to you for reassurance every now and then.
Has Paula met other dogs?
Yes she has, a little timid, no aggression at all.
How is Paula with humans?
She is very shy, Paula tends to prefer females to men, but is totally fine with my 10 and 15yr old sons and seems to enjoy the fuss they give her.
Have you noticed that Paula is afraid of any particular things?
She isn’t keen on strange men, although I’m sure once you have her trust she will be so loyal and loving. Cars and loud noise can startle her, but becoming less so each day
Any other useful information?
Paula is an adorable, very pretty girl. She will need time to learn to trust that her life has now changed, moments of her inner puppy come out and I can see the dog she will become. With her wagging tail and zooming around the garden in short bursts you can see how wonderful she will be. Paula is a gentle soul, sits with her legs crossed, very quirky and looks very elegant. Paula takes food from your hand very gently and no arguing over food with my other dog.
What kind of home do you think would be suitable?
Paula would suit a family home, she is fine with my cat, interested in her but didn’t want to chase.
I don’t think she needs another dog in the home, she likes my dog but isn’t reliant on him. She is good with children, I would say age 10yrs upwards.
Paula will make a beautiful family dog, she just needs some time to let her beautiful soul come out.
